Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Succeeding in Business Series is exactly what our department has been waiting for from the publishing industry! Surveys and diagnostic tests tell us that our students bring a decent set of knowledge skills in the Microsoft Office applications to our classroom. However, they woefully lack the ability to apply these skills in problem solving, especially business-related problems. The Succeeding in Business with Office text will enable us to challenge our students to think critically and develop software-related solutions to 21st century business problems." — Joseph R. "Ranny" Cullom, Ph.D., Monfort College of Business
